VIDEO: Body of Royal nurse carried into church for funeral

The body of Jacintha Saldanha, the British nurse who apparently committed suicide after taking a prank call, was brought to a church in southern India for a memorial service and burial.

Saldanha will be buried in her home village of Shirva in southern Karnataka state after the memorial.

Her widower Ben Barboza looked after the preparations for his wife's memorial and funeral at "Our lady of health" church in Shirva, about 52 km (32 miles) north of Mangalore.

Her son, Junal and daughter Lisha accompanied the body in the ambulance and entered with the casket into the church for her memorial service.
